The BEST Homemade Vegan Apple Cider!

It’s getting a bit chilly in our old apartment and you know what that means: It’s time to move into the kitchen haha. Yes, we live quite old school over here in Italy. When the cold weather strikes, we run to the kitchen and bake lots of homemade treats and boil endless amounts of apple cider to keep us warm. The heat from the stove works wonders in our little kitchen and all the warm food in our belly puts us right in hibernation mode. Slow living. It makes me sleepy haha.

For years everyone has been talking about apple cider vinegar as a holy grail of healthy living and fitness, some swear on it as a weight loss supplement. Is it actually a hype or is apple cider vinegar really great for your and your family’s health?

It obviously won’t work miracles, but I think it’s amazing for your well-being. Among its many benefits, apple cider vinegar can improve digestion, lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Impressive, right? And making it at home makes it even more nutritious!

Homemade Vegan Apple Cider
This here is my signature homemade vegan apple cider recipe. I used to make this with honey back in the day but I have now switched to maple syrup, date syrup, or even brown sugar sometimes (or maybe even a mixture of all 3 if I feel like it). I absolutely love this recipe and hope you do too.
The addition of the orange is optional, but I do recommend it. Enjoy
